How to sync different iPhoto libraries to different ipads

I have 2 iphoto libraries; 1 for me and 1 for my mum.  I sync her iPad and my iPhone on my same iTunes copy.  Is there a way I can chose different iPhoto libraries for our devices from 1 iTunes?
Or should I set up a new iTunes application just for her on a separate login on my MacBook?

iTunes will always sync with the iPhoto Library that has last been opened in iPhoto.
Before syncing her iPad, quit iTunes and iPhoto and double-click her iPhoto library to open it in iPhoto.
Then relaunch iTunes and connect her iPad. Now you should see her iPhoto library in the panel to sync photos.

  • How to Sync Modified iPhoto Photos to New iPad?

    Hi, the question is really in the title. I have just returned from holiday and have edited 300+ photos in iPhoto. These have been synced to my iPad which is only showing the originals, not the modified versions. After searching these forums I found a solution for the iPhone - deleting the iPod cache file in iPhoto package contents - but this did not help on the iPad.
    I have batch changed the names of the photos and re-synced but this has not helped. I suspect I could export them all and then re-import but iPhoto loses tagged faces doing that and having spent hours assigning faces I'm not keen on going through that again.
    Has anyone cracked this particular issue, or could someone with an iPad try modifying a photo and seeing if it syncs okay - would be good to know if this is a local issue to me or a generic problem.

    Hi, René,
    that is not as it should be, so pardon my very basic questions - just to be sure:
    How do you sync from iTunes? Have you set the "Sync Photos from" pop-up menu in the "Devices" tab in iTunes  to "Aperture" and not to your "Pictures" folder?
    To sync the edited versions, you have to sync with Aperture and not with the masters folder on the Disk. Set Aperture to share Previews with the iLife Applications (in the Aperture Preferences > Previews tab) and to automatically create the Previews. Set the preview quality and size to your main display dimensions.
    If you already have that, please post back and explain more how you are syncing with your iPhone.

  • Syncing two iphoto libraries on two different macs

    Can't seem to find an answer to this one so here goes. I am trying to sync my iphoto libraries that I have on two different macs of mine. One a mac pro and one a macbook. Both are running 10.5.7 and iphoto 8 with all the updates. I have sharing on enabled on both macs and in iphoto. I can do a manual drag and drop but I have 1000's of photos and that would take way to long to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Use iPhoto Library Manager to move Events/Albums/Pics plus associated metadata between Libraries.

    How can I create albums in the Photos app on the iPad
    Photos that were taken with the iPad (or any photos in the camera roll) can be deleted right on the iPad. Tap the trash can icon in the top right corner if you are viewing the pho,to in full screen, or if you are viewing as thumbnails - tap the arrow in the upper right corner - tap the photos that you want to delete and then tap - Delete.
    Photos that were synced from your computer using iTunes can only be deleted by de-selecting them from the folder from where they were synced -  and then re-syncing.

  • How to sync purchased app from laptop to ipad?

    when i connect ipad to laptop i can sync my apps in my ipad to my laptop,
    but if i downloaded apps on my laptop, and i want to transfer them into my ipad, how to sync rather than dragging them into ipad manually?

    You're welcome.
    No sure which part of my reply is unclear especially since there is no Apps tab for youriPad sync preferences with iTunes on the iPad.
    With Sync Apps selected under the Apps tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes. When your iPad is connected to iTunes and is selected under Devices in the iTunes source list, this makes the various tabs for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes available in the main iTunes window - with an Apps tab being one of them along with Music, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, Photos, etc.

    You connect the iPad to the computer and use the Transfer Purchases function in iTunes to put them on the Mac's internal drive. They can't actually be run on a Mac.

    I do not understand how to sync my iPod touch to my ipad

    That is because you cannot sync the iPod Touch to the iPad. It's not possible to connect the two devices in any way at all for any reason whatsoever.
    if you want to download the same music that is on the iPod to the iPad, you can do that in iTunes in the purchased tab. If you want to have the same apps on the iPad, go to the purchased tab of the App Store and download the apps again. You can do the same with books in the iBooks app.
    If you want to sync, Notes, Contacts, calendars, you can so that in Settings>iCloud - as long as you set up an icloud email account and turn those features on in the settings.
    Perhaps, if you were to explain exactly what you want to do, we might be able to offer specific instructions.

  • How to unify multiple iPhoto libraries from different Mac OS versions?

    I am pretty good with the Mac itself and have been a long time user. I knew full well acumulating multiple iphoto libraries in older backups (intead of building up on one) was not a great idea but for several reasons I have had to live that way. Now is the time to clean it all up once and for all and I need some wisdom;
    -I got my external drive as my new iphoto library now. It's being used, there are already albums in it and it's ready to accept older libraries.
    -What I want is that the older libraries (about 10 of them from different Mac OS versions) to show up in the new external drive as they looked in iphot back then. As albums in other words.
    -I do not want them imported in a single folder that's full of photos.
    Any help is much appreciated,

    If you imported a previous iphoto library into your new one, it created a folder inside the iphoto called "imported".
    That was the problem. One should never import one library into another.  Only iPhoto 6 libraries and earlier can be imported into a library now.  With the introduction of iPhoto 7 the library was changed from a folder to a package which can't be imported by the current iPhoto version.
    To use an older library with a new iPhoto version one just opens that library with iPhoto and lets iPhoto update it as necessary.  No importing necessary.
    Also you can use the paid verson of  iPhoto Library Manager  to merge those additional libraries into your current working library (be sure to have a current backup of your current library before merging).  What will be included are albums, Events, keywords, titles, descriptions, places.  Books, slideshows, calendars in the other libraries will be copied over as just albums.

  • How do I merge iPhoto Libraries which use different versions of iPhoto?

    I have three Mac computers and would like to merge the 3 iPhoto Libraries and put them in one library on an external hard drive, so that all 3 computers can access the library if possible, although it is a priority for my newest MacBook to access all the photos, including the older photos on my older Macs. Doing it in such way that I preserve metadata and edits would be deirable too--all my photos are jpegs. Right now my iMac is runnning OS 10.6.8 with iPhoto 7.1.5, my older MacBook is also running OS 10.6.8 with iPhoto 7.1.5 and my newest MacBook runs OS 10.7.5 with iPhoto 9.4.3. Is it possible to merge these 3 libraries without upgrading operating systems and iPhoto versions on the older computers? I have read that the best way to merge libraries is to use the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager which I'd like to use, but its latest version requires a newer version of iPhoto than the one on the older computers and I don't see a download for an older version of iPLM that might possibly do what I want. Any suggestions?

    I am still curious if it would be a good second option to export the photos out of the older libraries into the newest one. I know this would convert them as you have said and also lose metadata and edits in the process, which is preferale to me over upgrading the older computers.
    More simple.
    Copy those libraries to the new machine.
    Open them with the newer iPhoto - that will upgrade their libraries. (And leave the originals untouched on the other machines)
    Merge them into the third library. Less work, less dataloss.

  • How can I save iPhoto Libraries that are in Trash?

    Hello. I have been having troubles with iPhoto which are basically cured at the moment. However during the process I had to drag two iPhoto Libraries to my Trash.
    My iPhoto is working fine at the moment, but I do not want to delete those two in the Trash for awhile yet. How can I get them out of Trash into a Folder to save them until I am sure I want to trash them? Can I create a Folder in Documents or Movies and save them there or some other place I can create a Folder to save them. I do not want them on my Desktop as they are quite large (15 and 22GB).
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Create a new folder on the desktop. Drag the libraries from the trash into that folder. Then put the folder where ever you want, including your Photos folder.
    The desktop and trash are just like any other folder on your Mac. Their contents are stored on your hard drive, so they are taking up the same space where ever you put them. (You have to empty trash to regain the space the contents of trash take up.)

  • Can sync two iPhoto libraries? (via.mac?)

    My wife and I both use macs. We both take digital photos and so each have iPhoto libraries - both of which are inevitably incomplete. But what would be really handy is to have one 'shared' iPhoto library.
    Can users on two machines somehow sync or share iPhoto libraries - either through wifi sync or via .mac ?

    At the present there is not way to sync iPhoto 7 libraries. Any sync application can sync the image files but the database file, Library6.iPhoto, that contains all of the organization information, events, slideshows, keywords, comments, etc. has to be the same as far as content. Syncing apps cannot sync content of files. Until iPhoto Library Manager gets updated to be compatible with iPhoto 7, the only way is to export and import manually. At least the exported file will contain the keywords, title, comments and changed date (if the date was changed).
    So keep new photos in their own events so that when it comes time to export and import it's easy to know which are the new ones.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Is it possible to sync multiple iphoto libraries with the iPhone?

    I have two libraries in iPhoto 08 but iTunes only lets me pick the default iPhoto library to sync with my iPhone. Is there a way to sync the iPhone with multiple iPhoto libraries?

    You are correct.  This used to work in the past although admittedly I haven't tried it for some time as it was of no direct use for my purposes.
    If the goal is to see another MobileMe account's calendar(s) on your iOS device then an alternative would be to share the calendar(s) in question to yourself.
    Assume you currently have MobileMe user account A on your iPhone.
    Login to MM user account B with which has the calendar you wish to have access to on your iPhone
    Click on Calendars
    Click on the Share button for the calendar you wish to see added to your iPhone.
    Type in the MobileMe email address for MM user account A and set it for read & write access
    Login to MM user account A on
    Go to calendars and accept the invitation to join the calendar you sent from MM account B
    Go your iPhone (you may need to turn it on and off to make the calendars refresh ) and check your calendars, you should now have the other calendars added to your MobileMe account A's calendar
    Note: You can repeat step # 3 for each of the calendars you wish to see on your iPhone.
